As the calendar turns once more and 2019 is upon us, we reflect on the path we’ve traveled and look boldly ahead.

Our hearts have carried heavy burdens, yet we are grateful to have found kindred spirits in the midst honoring our fallen sons and daughters of America.

Together we have found strength and shared hope as we reach toward the future with pride and purpose.

In the coming year, all of us in the Big Nick's Ride Family look forward to riding with you — sharing smiles, offering comfort and providing a home for your patriotic hearts.

 We love our Country and the men and women who defend it

​In 2019, ten years will have passed since an American hero last raised his hand.  Raising his hand for service was what set Nicholas Xiarhos apart from his peers.  Nick had an enduring passion about serving our great country and he dreamed about someday becoming a United States Marine – a dream that became even more important after the attacks of September 11, 2001, when he was just 13 years old.
